AAA HQ received a very interesting donation to the Restoration and Maintenance Center project on November 18:
Use this $100 for four squares at $25 each.
One for Orville Wright
One for Wilbur Wright
One for Harriet Quimby
One for Amelia Earhart
Please put our squares near the front door.
It took a while to get this to you from where we are.
It will also take a while for the donor information to get back to us.
We will check to see that our names are on the appropriate squares on the chart for the new building during our next visit.
Thank you for your kind attention to this.
Brent Taylor at HQ has responded:
Orville, Wilbur, Harriet & Amelia,
Thank you for becoming Antique Airfield Ambassadors and supporting the future APM Restoration Center. Per your request, we have placed your august group as close to the front of the hangar door as possible.
The ladies have been given plot number LL25 (Harriet) & LL26 (Amelia) while the gentlemen have plots MM25 (Orville) & MM26 (Wilbur). We will hold your deeds for these plots here at the Air Power Museum for such a time when you may be able to stop by and pick them up.
Thanks again for your support of this exciting project. We hope other aviation luminaries, such as yourselves, may become supporters of the APM Restoration Center in the future.
